Graphite Producers

Graphite producers - natural graphite

For decades graphite producers have been mining natural graphite for the steel industry and this industry still requires massive amounts of natural graphite for all sorts of purposes. More recently the discovery of graphene creates a whole world of thrilling new possibilities for natural graphite, which are only beginning to be explored. For decades, the leading producer of natural graphite has been China, which is currently home to at least 70% of the known deposits in the world. At the same time, the demand for natural graphite has led people to a global search for hitherto undiscovered deposits with some very exciting results, for example in Sri Lanka. It also raises the possibility of reopening previously unviable mines.
